Vic Film Fest Zaynê Akyol and Peter Svatek, Tayler Staneff and the Save Movement


Published February 9, 2017


Two filmmakers with their works included in the 2017 Victoria Film Festival:

Zaynê Akyol’s film Gulîstan, Land of Roses travels deep into the mountains and deserts of Kurdistan where armed female guerillas from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) defend Kurdish territory against ISIS. By offering a window into this largely unknown world, the film exposes the hidden feminist face of a revolutionary group united by a common vision of freedom.

Peter Svatek, writer and director of Theatre of Life, talks about the Refettorio Ambrosiano, an extraordinary soup kitchen conceived by renowned chef Massimo Bottura during the Milan 2015 World’s Fair. Massimo invited 60 of the world’s best chefs to join him to cook food for refugees and the homeless of Milan using uncooked waste food thrown out by Expo.

Tayler Staneff is the Former Operations Manager with Mercy for Animals Canada and her PhD research examines, among other things, "the human-animal relationship involved with industrial animal agriculture in Canada, and ... illustrates the failures of the current legal system. My work assesses the blatant speciesism within our legal system and how this legalized animal exploitation also leads to the repression of those speaking out on the behalf of animals." Tayler Staneff holds a MA in Critical Sociology and a BA in Political Science with a minor in Sociology from Brock University. She is currently volunteering her time to help change the world for animals through the Save Movement.
